Henry was a good friend to all and of special remembrance to
me as I was his partner in 1968 when we both won our first
NABC titles, the Fall Nationals men's pairs in Coronado, CA (San Diego). I remember we were leading by a very small margin and had a disastrous board in the last round. Moping in the bar we both felt terrible but Henry was a bit optimistic. No computers those days, so finally when someone came up to our table to congratulate us, it felt doubly sweet.
We shall all miss him!

Even if 2H is only F1 with 2D GF, it is better to bid 2H followed by 3C GF to clarify distribution for strain and level decisions.

I saw it for the first time last month on my way to Orebro for the CC; absolutely spectacular structure plus the view of Oslo just marvelous.

I have been meaning to ask the first Norwegian expert I could the following: Have you ever done the Holmenkollen??
Also, how ‘crazy’ do you have to be to try it?

Thanks.

I have known and respected Mike for 50 years. We never played together but had talked about a Seniors partnership for a while now. We saw a lot of each other at Florida Regionals; he was an expert at one other thing not mentioned by others above. Simply said, Mike:“if you ever need a restaurant recommendation, come to me” Right he was but I did have a chance to reciprocate when he came to the PGA Regional last June (where I live). I recommended Cafe Chardonnay and it turned out to be a super hit (his partner, Virginia, still thanks me).

We are all still in shock as I saw Mike just 2 weeks ago at the Daytona Beach Regional…

Excellent change; I had a situation in Philadelphia where my LHO's
cell phone rang as his wife was involved in medical treatment; staff gave his team automatic 5VP penalty because this was NABC Swiss; gentleman was 81 years old. My thoughts at the time were that staff could have listened to brief explanation and reduced penalty to 1 or 2 VP.
